to what senator john mccain of arizona had to say followed by senator dick durbin of illinois. >> we can and must get an agreement. otherwise, i think, first of all, the markets are going to start reacting. >> unfortunately for the last ten days with the house and congress gone for the thanksgiving recess, there hasn't -- much progress hasn't been made, but tomorrow there's no excuse. we're back in town. >> reporter: so there you heard senator durbin say no more excuses, they're back in town, going to have to get back to work. certainly there is more pressure on lawmakers to get this done. the clock is ticking. some people believe that democrats and the president may feel that they have a little bit more leverage since the president was re-elected on a promise to raise taxes on the wealthy. i can tell you that the hope coming out of the meeting, the prior to thanksgiving meeting, we heard from senator reade saying they hope to meet with the president again. there's not a meeting on the president's schedule but that could certainly change. >> thank you very much. >>> a spectacular scene o
will pay its bills, now it's time to make sure that all americans can bay theirs. senator durbin? >> with this vote of 74-26, we have averted a crisis. america has avoided defaulting for the first time in our history on our national debt. the fears and concerns of americans across the board were considered by this congress, and as a result we've come together on a bipartisan basis. i did not vote for this with a great deal of enthusiasm because the down payment on the deficit included in this bill comes primarily from working families and those who are struggling in america. if we are going to have true deficit reduction and address this debt, we have to put everything on the table and bring everyone to the table for shared sacrifice. the joint committee has a particular responsibility here called on together another one to one and a half trillion dollars in savings. let us make sure that when we do it, we do it in a fair and just manner for all the people in america. and when we return, as senator schumer will spell out, that we address the number one issue in america, creating
, a wealthy state. i spoke with senator dick durbin two weeks ago, and we were talking about a compromise, if there was a way to raise the money from the wealthy that the president wants to get from raising tax rates on people or households making over $250,000, whether there was another way to do it. here's another clip of that. >> -- did an analysis saying you could cap deductions at $35,000 and have the estate tax go back to where it was and you get $1.3 trillion. you cap deductions at $25,000 and you've got $1.3 trillion. i'm simply making the point, there's a lot of ways to get there that don't involve raising tax rates, is that a compromise you'd ever consider? >> erin, you're exactly right. but i think what the president's trying to say is let's protect working families. those making less than $250,000 a year, no tax increase for them. we can do it either through the rates or through the deductions in the code, you've given a good illustration. >> and what do you think about that senator warren. durbin making it clear he's -- there's a lot of different ways to get there. would you
is a cave caveat, senator dick durbin is taking a hard line approach. quote, we can't be so naive to believe that just taxing the rich will solve our problems and put everything on the table, repeat. everything on the table. and that's the left of center dick durbin. yesterday, t was taxes, today, there's entitlements, tte impasse continues as we countdown to that deadline. next case, china, clearly the number one world's polluter and criticizes us for not doing enough about climate change, a global carbon tax could be coming, are we going to have to pay? we'll talk to a leading environmentalist after the break and of course, we will have the opening belfour you next. bell for you next. >> all right, just a few seconds away from the opening bell. the futures suggest we're going be to be down nearly 40 points. of we have this fiscal cliff and it's a deadline, the tax increases and more huge spending cuts it seems like the two sides are on impasse it looks likes it's shifted to entitlement reform or cuts and no serious movements in the negotiations and check the big board, the opening trendd
take the high ground. i thank senator kerry, senator mccain, senator lugar, durbin, barrasso, coons, tom udall, moran, and many others and especially senator harkin, who is the father of the americans with disabilities act, for leading the way on this issue. with their help, i hope we can quickly ratify this treaty. mr. mcconnell: madam president? the presiding officer: the republican leader. mr. mcconnell: over the past few weeks americans have rulely started to focus in on the debate we're having in washington about how the two parties can work together to prevent a short-term economic crisis in january and an even bigger january crisis later on. so it may come as a surprise to many to see that with just a few weeks to go before a hard deadline on solving the short-term issue, president obama has decided to hit the road -- hit the road this week to drum up support for his favored approach. it's hard to believe really. i mean, every week he extend spends campaigning for his ideas is a week we're not solving the problem. it is completely counterproductive. the election is over. he w
back. eleanor, i'll start with you. let's listen to dick durbin and lindsey graham today. >> okay. >> there's a bipartisan bill passed by the senate that will spare 98% of taxpayers across america from any income tax raises and 90% of the businesses. it's a bipartisan bill the house should pass to make sure we go forward with these negotiations without this specter of tax increases for working families. >> i'm willing to generate revenue as it's fair to ask my party to put revenue on the table below historic averages. i will cap deducks. if you cap deductions around the 30, $40,000 end, you can raise a trillion dollars in revenue and the people who lose their deductions are the upper end americans. >> eleanor, it starts out one way and then it doesn't seem like there's a lot of room. how do you read that? >> i treed as thanksgiving rhetoric. i think the democrats are ready to deal with entitlement reform. zack put that on the table a year and a half ago when they came close to reaching a deal and the republicans are held up on the notion of tax rates. if you listen early to what s
the company. some entilement reform is okay with illinois democratic senator dig durbin, but thinks that social security should be left alone. >> social security does not add one penny to our debt. not a penny. it's a separate funded operation and we can do things and i believe we should, smaller things played out long-term that give it solvency. >> and congressman peter king says nobody will get all they want, but if president reagan and speaker o'neill could get a deal, president obama and speaker boehner should as well. >> harris: let's hope that's true. thank you. right now, a child missing, city on edge and volunteers going door-to-door to try to find young dylan. also, no longer a mysteries, but an official cause. we now know why a strip club blew up and more than 40 buildings and homes including a day care center were heavily damaged. debris for blocks. and we'll check with the firefighters injured trying to save lives. and can it get any bigger? the powerball lottery mightier and millions of americans buying tickets. are you playing? stay close. with verizon. hurry in this s
the country that mobilize to try and stop cuts. the number two senate democrat, dick durbin, says he'd be open to look at entitlements, but not part of the fiscal cliff talks. here is the senate majority leader's view. >> at the meeting we had that i mentioned with president and the four leaders, president obama said that social security is not part of what is what we're going to do in this. i agree with him. and there are things that i personally believe there are things that we can do with entitlements that don't hurt beneficiaries. >> but if you have each side starting to take things off the table, it makes you wonder if at some point if gets harder to make a deal. shep. >> shepard: mike emmanuel on capitol hill. the white house and president obama will be making their case to regular americans this week. republican leaders say he should be negotiating, not campaigning. he's not the only politician planning a fiscal cliff road trip. we'll go to the white house and the fox report coming up in a bit. first, hours ago, more than 200,000 people crowded into the central square in cairo to call f
with dick durbin who came on the show because eric said, okay, we'll do deals on taxes, but you brought up capital gains tax, no. carried interest, no. raising the actual marginal rates, no, we don't want to do that yet when he left we got calls from democrats saying does he really want to make a deal? >> i got two yesterday that -- >> i got e-mails from democrats going wow, he sounds like he wants to make a deal. one senator said did he really mean what he said? considering that he said nothing, yeah, i guess so but it was the tone then yesterday dick durbin came on and we had to basically stop asking about medicare about three or four minutes in because it was nonsensical talking about creating new programs. but this is a guy that also supporting simpson bowles and let us know like eric, we'll make a deal and figure it out. >> both sides at various times tells you something about recent history. you think about where republicans were a year and a half ago, where their attitude was, no, we will not discuss revenues, not one penny, ever, ever, ever so for cantor to say, of course, we'll di
because when he sat there with dick durbin -- he said, grover, i am not really for tax increases. i and just putting tax increases on the table here and durbin is giving me all of these spending cuts and i have not agreed to anything. i just talk about tax increases. i said -- senator, do you think it is possible durbin goes back to the democratic caucus and says i am putting these imaginary spending cuts on the table -- and he is giving me the tax increases. tom coburn from oklahoma said he would never be that dishonest. senator, i think he is and i think you are not. and i think he takes you seriously and i think you should not take him seriously. but again, they spend more than a year putting a the simpson- bowles commission, which, if you have seen a, a slide presentation, an outline, it is in haiku, the only numbers and the page numbers. it is a series of interesting things. there are specific about the tax burden going up by -- $5 trillion in tax increases. as ryan reads this as a trillion dollars in tax increases from eliminating or reducing deductions and exemptions and so o
.m. majority whip dick durbin will talk about the so-called fiscal cliff and deficit reduction at the center for american progress. fiscal cliff, a combination of those expiring tax provisions and budget cuts that could take place the beginning of the new you. they include the bush-era tax cuts and sequestration. live coverage starts at 1130 eastern also on c-span. we are likely to about the fiscal cliff during the senate session today getting underway at 10 a.m. eastern, just over a half hour from now. after the gavel and majority leader reid will be recognized to speak and will likely outlined the schedule for the day which could include debate on defense programs and policy, and possibly legislation to do with equal rights, people with disabilities. centers will us from 12:30-2:15 eastern for weeks the party meetings. live coverage of the senate and members gavel in right here on c-span2. right now some debate from the floor of the senate yesterday between majority leader reid and republican leader mitch mcconnell. d, w they talkede about potentialit't changes to filibuster rules. here's
the government to work. senators durbin and coburn, both sides, were working on a deal. have you patty murray now empowered by having led the democrats to success in their senate re-election campaign. and she is the incoming head of the budget committee. she is at the table. you've got a group of people on both sides who really want to make this work. and i think the speaker what he is doing as ken just said is sending some red meat, but i don't think anyone seriously thinks that the election mandate is to revisit health care. that is a done deal. >> let me revisit where we started the program this morning. the president believes that a second term agenda is about restoring some faith in the fact that government can work, and this is the first test of that. but then there is immigration reform, which he wants to get done. there's got to be some attention on energy. there's the issue of climate change. but how much of his time is going to be dominated by the necessity for america to figure out what its new strategy is in the middle east, beyond winding down our military forces? because we're neede
.d.a. this treaty is personal to many members here, to senator durbin, to senator harkin, to senator lugar and others, and members from both sides of the aisle have worked hard to bring us to the floor today. i believe the questions have been answered. i think the report and the record could not be more clear. the only question that remains is whether we're going to be remembered for approving the disabilities convention and reconnecting with our best traditions or finding an excuse to delay and defy our own core responsibility as senators. mr. president, i have received countless letters and heard from nearly 300 organizations on this issue. there is a long, long list -- i'm not going to read all through those 300 -- but every single major military organization supports this treaty. the air force sergeants association, the air force women officers association, the american g.i. forum, the blinded veterans association, the division for early childhood of the council for exceptional children of disabled american veterans, the military officers association of america, the national guard asso
on capitol hill tonight, thank you for being with us. >> senator dick durbin will talk about efforts in the senate to resolve the fiscal cliff. it we will bring you his speech live starting at 11:30 a.m. eastern on c-span. in an interview today, eric kanter with the deficit reduction plan because they were elected to congress to fix problems. we will hear from republican leaders talking to reporters on the debt ceiling agreement to votvote. >> good afternoon, everyone. in january, our first week that we were sworn into office, the president asked for an increase in the debt ceiling and i made clear at that time that there would be no increase without significant cuts of spending and changes of the way that we spend the american people's money. shortly after that, i was in new york and outline that i thought the spending cuts should exceed the amount of the debt limit increase and there should be no taxes as part of this agreement. when you look at what we have been able to achieve, we met those standards that have been outlined. it is time for america to deal with its spending proble
for that in these negotiations that take place. >> senator durbin said he thinks that president obama won't include a deal - [inaudible] >> first of all, the debt ceiling. we would be foolish to work out something on stopping this from going over the cliff and then a month or six months later the republicans pull the same game as they did before and say we aren't going to agree to increasing the debt ceiling. i agree with the president. it has to be a package deal. what was your other question? [inaudible question] >> there are things we have already taken care of, the first of april and take a look at that stuff. that's not essential. [inaudible question] >> we can't do anything with the disaster aid package and i'm told it will be tomorrow or the next day. [inaudible question] >> republican, ok. you said what's holding it up? i said republicans. talk to the republicans. it's up to them. [inaudible question] >> i have said on a number of occasions the internet poker bill can move forward if we get 15, 17 republican votes. this stage, we have gotten none. >> you talked to the president over the weekend.
everything on the table. >> but when asked if he'd be willing to reform social security, senator durbin says social security doesn't add one penny to the debt. that it's a separately funded operation. one final note, the president was out shopping on saturday and when asked by a pool reporter if that was his part to avoid the so-called fiscal cliff, the president said, come on, guys, we're just christmas shopping here. that's it from the white house. talks expected to continue this week. back to you. >> steve: let the games begin. douglas, thank you. >> gretchen: now to the rest of today's headlines, brand-new evidence that could have changed the outcome of the casey anthony murder trial. police in florida now admitting that they missed a google search done by someone in the anthony household. the search seems kind obvious. it was for the words, foolproof suffocation. the search done the same day two-year-old caylee anthony was last seen live. the mom acquitted of her daughter's murder, even her defense attorney says he was shocked this never came up in court. >> steve: meanwhile, it's like
. not be in your office someplace. senator durbin reminded me of one senator, a republican senator, who forced us to be here over the weekend, and he left. went back to a wedding in his state. mr. president, i repeat for the third time, the only people that think the senate's working really well right now are the republican leader and the republican senators, because it's not working well. they've abused the process. they've abused something that was set up to help legislation get passed. the filibuster. they've abused it. and now the filibuster is on everything. they can talk all they want about filling the amendment tree and all that. that is so -- mr. president, that has no bearing on what's going on around here. we have -- we try to get things done. the defense bill is a good example. i said let's move to the defense bill. they objected to it. they have been talking about it for months. i agreed to move to it, no preconditions at all. we have to do other things. we have a very short period of time here now and everything around here is the big stall. and he talks about getting bills done. mr.

the democrats saying they don't want to see any entitlement reform. >> but durbin, where did he come from? >> that's what i mean. >> i'm trying to figure out -- trying to see his personal situation. where did he find religion all of a sudden? he's an obama ally and suddenly he's talking -- are you looking at all these things very specifically? looking at the fix and option action. you can tell from the market. >> the most aggravating thing is that we're sitting here talking about the government and what the market is going to do as a function of what the government does. if you look at the volatility markets, i think it's incredibly interesting. the market is being very rational. the vix is really a function of liquidity. liquidity in the system is incredibly stable. the markets are -- that will significantly drive higher levels, if you look at ted spreads and where bank funding is. that's the real significant spikes index, so you need to be careful to hedge your portfolios right now. but right now, the markets, the s&p markets are really pricing in a very range bound market through janua
he could engage me on that. as you all know, friends of dick durbin and friends of the former first president bush, they were virtually whitewashed out of e-- out of the picture in that period of time include big the first president bush's son, which i owls thought was sort of sad because i've come to admire the service of president george h.w. bush. so that bit of reminiscence, i'll just turn it over but i do think, i agree that it's harder now, hard for me to see something serious coming together except for the fact that something has to happen, and i feel a little more optimistic than i did preelection but we can talk about why that is. >> before joe, i wanted to jump in. i forgot to mention the most important part of joe's resume, he's also an adjunct professor at george mason university. >> i was just about to correct you on that, paul. thank you, jackie. that was interesting. never sat at a dais before, especially not in the chairman's seat. this is pretty cool. let me try to give you -- i have 12 lessons that i've wren down but i should note at the outset i was not at an trus
question. where do you draw the line with data durbin campaigning? are their privacy issues? >> absolutely. we had 18 inside of our campaign that tested our privacy policy. the president believes in this. the new york times reported that if you went to obama for america, you would get a cookie if you went to way porn website. >> that is not true. >> it was on the front page of "the new york times." >> ok. [laughter] >> what about my surfing would have been relevant to you? >> most of that stuff is not true. the best data was things we collected at the doors. there was some commercial stuff that every campaign purchased. the truth is the more we learn about data, the more we learn how imports and the connection was. the door knocking, having a real conversation, that mattered. >> what happens to the database now? >> we went out and survey the our entire world and said to them, what are you going to do? what happens to us? people want to be involved in supporting the president. how about looks is a discussion we need to have. he cannot run two campaigns and then say we're going to do it from
